The Towson University Center for STEM Excellence, in partnership with the Department
of Computer & Information Sciences is excited to announce the B′More Secure GenCyber
Train the Trainer program, designed to support secondary educators in Maryland in
engaging their students in learning about cybersecurity.
About the Program
The 2022–2023 B’More Secure GenCyber Train the Trainer program is a year-long professional learning opportunity for middle and high school
educators in Maryland that will build teacher capacity to integrate cybersecurity
concepts into their courses and engage their students in learning about careers and
post-secondary opportunities in cybersecurity. We are particularly interested in
increasing interest in cybersecurity among students traditionally underrepresented
in cyber careers and fields of study (ie. African America, Hispanic) and strongly
encourage educators who work with these populations of students to apply.
No Coding Experience Required
The program is open to secondary teachers of any subject with little to no cybersecurity
content knowledge (novice track) as well as teachers with existing cybersecurity knowledge
and teaching experience who want to continue to build their skills (advanced track).
Stipend, Chromebook and Credits
Teachers who successfully complete the B’More Secure GenCyber program will receive
a $1,200 stipend (must be U.S. citizen or permanent resident), a new Chromebook (which
is theirs to keep), AU and/or CPD credits (pending Baltimore City and MSDE approval).
